June 14th (this year a Wednesday) is Flag Day. If you don't have one up year round, are you getting one to put up? And if you do, will you put it up correctly? Here's the U.S. Flag Code, if you're curious as to the proper display of our Colors.
It's something that bugs us, living overseas, that displaying our flag is not encouraged. It didn't use to be like this, but Americans nore are urged more and more to blend in if possible and at the very least not draw unnecessary attention to ourselves when away from home. I understand it, but it certainly makes me a little sad. I know what the kids and I will be doing on Wednesday though: we'll be decorating the inside of our house in red, white and blue glory.
